The Rangers are reveling in the aftermath of their 7-0 dismantling of the reeling Washington Capitals Sunday night. Here’s a look at some of the postgame chatter.
According to Andrew Gross, Captain Chris Drury has been cleared to play after his prolonged bout with a broken finger. That means a fourth liner from Sunday’s game like Todd White or Erik Christensen could find himself as a healthy scratch against Pittsburgh.
John Tortorella was thrilled with the play of the AC-D-sky line (Anisimov, Callahan, Dubinsky … it’s going to stick, I swear!), according to Jay Greenberg of the Post.
Rick Carpiniello provides his thoughts on the rout, including a key play with under fives seconds left in the first.
Also via Carpiniello, John Tortorella called the Dubinsky-Ovechkin bout, “good stuff,” and loves the way Marc Staal’s offensive game is rounding into form.
With 21 votes in his favor, Dubinsky easily earned the decision over Ovechkin at Hockey-Fights.com.

Jesse Spector writes that the Rangers smashed any notion of a Heritage jersey jinx.
